LG Optimus Slider coming soon at Best Buy sans contract, for Virgin Mobile
Tonight, one of our loyal readers pointed out to us that Best Buy has the LG Optimus Slider on its web site, listed as coming soon. The page shows the device being available for pre-paid carrier Virgin Mobile, without a contract, for $199.99. Not much in the way of specs is available, but we can tell you that the LG Optimus Slider offers a 3.2 inch LCD screen and a 3MP camera on back. A portrait oriented slide sliding QWERTY gives the phone its name and Android 2.3 is installed.
We probably will have to await the official introduction of the device by LG and Virgin to find out some of the other specs such as processor speed, RAM, resolution of the screen and some of the other important numbers that phone fanatics love to hear about. But with Best Buy already preparing to roll out the LG Optimus Slider, at least we know that the unit is on its way to Virgin Mobile soon.
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

The last so many LG phones from the Rumor Touch to these all look similar. I hope they haven't run out of creative juice.

When was the last time they were creative? The chocolate? The Voyager? Yeah, that juice has been sucked dry.
